So, This is the reason I have been quite quiet this last year. I have bee working as a full time, in house Storyboard artist on Digby Dragon! (And... I've also written one of the episodes) Its been very hush hush, This is probably the first image of the final Digby and friends available on the internet, before there was just the original pilot and old designs when it was aimed at a much younger audience (I've also included below- its very interesting how far it's come) MORE SOON!!!
So for a BBC children's pilot I was asked to design and create a monster puppet. I had just one condition.... that I would get to puppeteer it too! Below are some of the designs, and the final monster...
Wow... I can't believe I didn't post anything in 2015?! Terrible of me... I've been pretty busy working on something that's due out this Spring, but in the mean time, I'll be posting some of my other projects! I promise! :P
YAY! Its Finally here! Rock 'N' Rolling Snowman!
Made using Photoshop and After Effects, it took about 4 Months to make.
After a Snowman is given an old guitar as part of his decoration- he comes to life! and proceeds to Rock out! He is soon joined by Santa (Vocals), Rudolph (Drums) Jack Frost (Bass) and some Robins (who sing La La La)

This was a very interesting project, the Style is beautiful, and was great to work in. Below are the final presentation boards- the script was going through quite a few changes while I was working on it. A Few of the charities participating would alter, and originally it was Bill Baily who was to be the narrator. I believe it was Ricky Tomlinson who was the final narrator for this project. Below are the first few boards:
